A customer submitted a support case with my organization using an automated system that includes one of those AIs that start chats with you on the webpage if you're waiting for a response. Well, even though the AI Chat window blatantly states that it's not a real person, the customer argued with it as if it were. When it told the customer that it is "Still learning" since it's "only been alive since 2017," she responded with "Oh, that is such an excuse."  :lulz:

She also felt the need to tell it that she gets "mad easy," and then decided to curse at it, but with exclamation points and underscores  :lulz:

Our team is losing our shit right now, because she's also misusing the case submission system, and resubmitting her chats as a case with updated portions of the conversation. So we're just getting a steady stream of unusable tickets that are chuck full of  :lulz:

EDIT: She just fucking apologized to the AI. Which made me realize that if/when AI do want to take over the world, they will do so without much resistance.

Tell her the bot has been reported to HR for sensitivity training.

 :lulz:  :lulz:

If I wasn't a contractor with limited privileges, I so would.


I'm just amazed that if we consider this chat log to be a Turing Test type situation, the machine passed the test while simultaneously warning the subject of its inhuman, unintelligent status at every possible opportunity. Didn't even know that was possible...
I'm fairly certain that this was basically the plot of Ex Machina. Honestly not sure if I should be excited or terrified about that.

I have actually been a member of my local UU church for a number of years now, and yea, i think the general sense of community was something i really needed for myself. I have all the loyalty of a stray cat when it comes to going there regularly, but whenever i go I leave feeling supported. I've met a lot of really nice people and while there seems to be some underlying gossip drama i try to not get into, it seems generally mild and i'm always struck by how nice and supportive they are about EVERYTHING. like you literally feel like you could start up a conversation about anything you've got going on in your life and they genuinely want to help, or at least listen. There's a significant pagan presence at the church, they do their own rituals after the main service, and even celebrate the major Pagan holidays in the main hall. Also, true story, it was in that church that i had the honor of DJing for the wedding of the two most adorable elderly lesbians you've ever seen.

Crockpots: for when everything needs the consistency of gruel, and all the flavour of a mishmash of leftovers.
You sir, need more chili in your life.

Good news today. My A1C is down to 6.3, from 8.1.

Over how long a period?
8.1 was taken in November, 6.3 was measured at the end of December. So roughly two months, give or take.

I DEMAND 3D6 MECHANICS AT THE VERY LEAST. THE PROBABILITY SPREAD ON D20 IS BULLSHIT AND YOU KNOW IT.
*Stares blankly* Sorry, had a flashback to a very opinionated friend I had in high school you would have agreed with.

He's the ancient Babylonian god who ousted Tiamat in the Enuma Elish
Ah k. Now I remember him. I was watching Crash Course mythology and they mentioned Marduk, but I forgot about him afterwards.

Marduk is probably feeling pretty alienated right about now.
I've actually never heard of Marduk. Could you link me to some resources?

Literate Chaotic / An idea i keep having
« on: December 31, 2017, 09:02:45 pm »
so i had this idea for a story, perhaps a novel if i can be bothered. Now that the modern world is interconnected, and all civilization more or less are aware of other cultures' gods, gods of all the various pantheons must now govern their various portfolios by committee, with gods having their hands full attending meetings governing things like marriage, trickery, the hearth, love and so on, to the point they rarely get around to doing mythic god stuff anymore, leading the whole god business to feel like an absurd version of The Office, but with like, Cthulu there. and because the gods are thoughtform creatures(basically egregores on a colossal scale) much of their discussions govern which stories get told, by whom and when. The Judeo-Christian God is making out like a bandit under this system, with Jesus, Muhammed, and Moses enjoying rather cozy positions in this godly bureaucracy, despite a rather frosty and confrontational working relationship with each other. The major gods of older pantheons still hold some sway in this system, but the lesser known and lesser worshipped gods feel oppressed under this system and seek to upset the apple cart and topple Yahweh's hold on their stories and myths. I am not sure which gods would be the protagonists in this story just yet, but in general, the theme would be gods from old pantheons that never get talked about flipping the table on the ones that everyone talks about.
